Palma is Mallorca’s capital city. A beautiful and fashionable city filled with lovely shops, bars and restaurants as well as the famous cathedral – it’s perfect for a two or three-night stay.
Palma is perhaps the best-loved destination but there are plenty of smaller, less well-known places to explore. Deia is a small village in the Serra de Tramuntana, on the northwest coast of Mallorca. With its backdrop of mountains and long history of art and music, we think it’s one of the prettiest places on the island.
Then there’s Pollenca, a picturesque old town at the foot of the Tramuntana mountain range. If you can, try to time your visit for a Sunday when a traditional market takes over the old squares.
Just a couple of miles from the old town of Pollenca is Puerto Pollenca, a low key family friendly resort with lovely beaches, shady waterfront boardwalks and spectacular surrounds.
The beaches in Mallorca are simply ravishing. Located between Soller and Pollensa, Sa Calobra is one of the most scenic on the island with its curtains of rocks and cliff faces. Or why not try Port de Soller, where you will find a large sandy bay dotted with fishing boats and a promenade lined with restaurants. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, Formentor beach is hard to beat.Pollenca is a picturesque old town, while the port retains much of its natural charm and there are intimate sandy coves nestled between mountains at Cala San Vicenc and Formentor
